Warm winter accessories
This week’s roundup includes a couple of accessories to keep your hands and ears warm this winter, all without disconnecting you from the iOS universe. Read on!
The Echo PowerConnect Mini is a 1,600-mAh backup battery, small enough to fit into your front pocket—and it’s versatile, coming with a dual-headed connector that lets you charge either an iPhone or an Android smartphone on the fly.
The $100 iBT11 is a Bluetooth speaker set that can play back your tunes for up to 10 hours on a single charge. A magnet keeps the two speakers together, but you can separate them for stereo sound, or send different streams of music to each. The device includes a charging cradle, built-in mic, and other speakerphone features.
The $25 Premium USB Lightning Cables are sturdy—with a DuraBraid cable—and stylish, available in an array of colors that includes rose gold, for that extra touch of accessory class.
The $25 Hi-Fi Headphones with Mic includes 40-mm drivers for deep bass, a 9-foot cord for freedom of movement, and a gold-plated jack to deliver your music to you in crystal clear fashion.
Winter is approaching, which is is Mujjo’s time of year: The company makes a wide variety of touchscreen-friendly gloves, letting you keep your fingers warm even while operating your iPhone. The latest product, Leather Touchscreen Gloves, brings a bit of cow-hide into the brand’s lineup, for a chic, iconic look.
If Mujjo keeps your hands warm, well, there are other body parts, aren’t there? For your ears: NoiseHush’s $45 Bluetooth Earmuff Earphones.
The Rock Bluetooth portable speaker features “65-watts of power, two midrange speakers, two tweeters, and a subwoofer” to create great sound, a “sturdy rubberized finish” for rugged durability, and a “rechargeable lithium ion battery provides up to 8 hours of play time” for when parties go late.
The $109 Iris Lens Series claims to offer professional-level optics—“optical grade glass and billeted aluminum housing”—for your iPhone, in a kit that features wide angle, fisheye, and macro lenses. Lenses pop in and out of the strap-on mount, making it easy for you to get the best possible photo in the moment.
It’s still early, but Qube Smart Bulb has already made its Indiegogo crowdfunding goal. Don’t worry, there’s still time to get in on the action: A $160 pledge will get you ten of these bulbs—which you can control from your iPhone—when production starts.
